ENGLISH LANGUAGE & COMMUNICATION. Code : HU 101 (First Semester). Contact : 2L + I T = 3. Credits: 3. Guidelines for Course Execution Objective of the Course To impart basic skills of communication in English through intensive practice to the first year UG students of Engineering so as to enable them to function confidently and effectively in that language in the professional sphere of their life.
4 Desired Entry Behaviour The student must have some basic command of English that is must be able to : 1. Write reasonably grammatically 2. Understand ( if not use ) at least some 2500 general purpose words of English to express himself in writing and 1500 words to talk about day-to-day events and experiences of life. 3. Understand slowly-delivered spoken material in Standard Indian English , and 4. Speak reasonably clearly ( if not fluently ) on routine matters with his fellow students. Strategies for Course Execution The topics must be conveyed through plenty of examples. Lecture classes must be conducted as lecture-cum-tutorial classes. It is a course that aims to develop skills.
5 It is therefore practical in orientation. Plenty of exercises of various kinds must be done by the students both inside and outside the classroom. The teacher must not depend on a single or a set of two or three text books. He must choose his materials from diverse sources. Keeping in view the requirements of his students , the teacher may have to prepare some teaching and exercise material. For practice in listening , good tape recorders can be used if the more advanced facilities ( for example , language laboratory ) are not available. In fact they can be used very fruitfully. The teacher must function as a creative monitor in the class-room. Minimum time should be spent in teaching phonetic symbols , stress , intonation , etc.
6 The aim should be to enable the students to find out for himself the correct pronunciation of a word from a learner's dictionary. In teaching speaking, emphasis should be on clarity , intelligibility and reasonable fluency rather than on correct pronunciation of words. Classroom presentation and group discussion sessions should be used to teach speaking.
